Historically speaking, this is the all-time favorite of teams who come to us for participation training.
Runaways come to Hollywood with dreams of getting jobs as actors or at least extras but what happens is most often polar opposite to their expectation. The streets of Hollywood are replete with predators who seduce the young folks with drugs or false love and they end up addicted and/or working as teenage prostitutes. This modern-day human slavery targets children of both sexes as young as 12-13 years old.
Many will be confronted by gangs and given an offer they can’t refuse; Join or die. We go out to Hollywood to share the Love of Jesus and leave them cards to make sure they know they have someone to call if they hit rock bottom and have no one to turn to.
Edward James Olmos Presents A Ray of Hope.
(10m) A short Documentary about Hope For Homeless Youth.
Edward James Olmos takes you to the streets of Hollywood’s dark underbelly where the homeless kids hang out, sleep.
In almost every American city, thousands of kids are living in the streets due to the breakdown of the family. Unless they are intercepted, a staggering 70-80% of them will end up falling into drugs, prostitution, and crime.
But there is a group that offers a Ray of Hope: Hope for Homeless Youth, an organization directed by Clayton and Leanne Golliher, is on the street rescuing kids who have slipped through the cracks the inner city.
Bold evangelism with love and humility
When you carry a cross down the street, it’s an attention-getting conversation starter and can open doors with the most closed minded of people.
Since the late 1980's
We’ve been taking groups out with us on our weekend late-night outreaches to Hollywood blvd. and Sunset blvd. There is no substitute for hands-on training. We show you how to get prayed up and then how to minister the Love of Jesus to strangers on the streets of Hollywood.
Carrying the Crosses
It’s a visual representation of what Jesus did for us and people cannot help but ask about it.
Young or Mature
You’ll be able to take this experience back to your city and put it into action. You’ll be able to say, “We carried the 8ft crosses down Hollywood Blvd and shared Jesus.”
Does what we do sound like something you'd like to be a part of?
We’d like to think that most Christians would like to, but time or geography stands in the way.
There are several ways you can participate in this work.
Commit to pray for us:
Sign up for the REAL-TIME MINISTRY ALERTS and you’ll get a text when we are on our way out and are requesting your prayer covering. In one respect, this is arguably the most valuable contribution you can make. Most monthly donors signup to get these alerts and pray for us as well! Most times, after the outreach is done, we’ll inform you of what good what done and how many souls were saved thanks to your prayers.
“Boots on the Ground” make the Army of God run. Whether you one person, a small group or a whole church group, we invite you to come and learn though experience how to do what we do. We have taught close to five thousand people how to do this back in their areas over the past 33 years. When you do it yourself with us, you’ll feel confident to go back home and reach your area for Christ using the same methods.
Donate Goods and Services:
Goods? We need clothes, blankets, toiletries, tarps, ponchos, and socks. LOADS of Socks! McDonalds Gift cards are a favorite. Handing out a free McDonald’s Burger is a great tool for us. Just call us to ask us what we need and have a bunch of it sent to us. We use these things to open the door for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They are quite literally the “lifeblood” of the ministry. Our men’s rehabilitation home and discipleship program are always in need of a great many items.
Services? If you are a professional with a skill or have a business, the chances are pretty good that there is something you do that can help us. Call us to find out if your business, skill set or abilities are something that you can contribute to this worthy cause.
Commit to Monthly Financial Support
Partnership with us is the same with the Lord as you doing the works yourself. Maybe you wish you had time to feed the hungry, bring the homeless into your house, or preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to total strangers in the public square. Maybe you don’t. We believe that when you partner with us, it’s the same as you doing the work in the Lord’s eyes.
